In Metal Grasshopper Episode 3, metal god Philip H. Anselmo puts delusional manchild, Dave Hill, to the test with a round of heavy metal flash cards. Later Anselmo makes Hill sit in a closet for a seriously long time while he makes an awesome salad. Hill also rents a goat, discusses the metal worth of butterflies and more… In short, this one pretty much has everything.

Metal Grasshopper is a new web series in which comedian/NPR darling Dave Hill travels to the wilds of Louisiana to get schooled in the ways of heavy metal by legendary frontman Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Superjoint Ritual, Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals, et al). Conceived by Hill, Anselmo, and writer/director Chris Lee during a torchlit ceremony in the goddamn woods seriously late at night, Metal Grasshopper begins with Hill showing up unannounced at Anselmo’s secret compound somewhere in the sticks outside of New Orleans to learn directly from the master. Anselmo isn’t exactly crazy about the idea at first, but after Hill eventually proves he’s not messing around, Anselmo reluctantly agrees to take Hill under his heavily tattooed wing, share his unholy wisdom, and let Hill crash in one of the upstairs guest rooms.
Metal Grasshopper was directed by Chris Lee with Joe Randazzo, written by Chris Lee, Dave Hill, and Phil Anselmo, edited by Phil Costello and produced by Chris Lee.
